You didn't bother trying to find out otherwise.

If she's this dumb and gullible she should find another occupation. Toilet cleaner at Mar-a-Grifto perhaps?

17. The Republican Party allowed her to believe the lies. Just like every time a GOP poll was asked

about Obama's citizenship and told how many didn't believe he was a citizen and replied "Who am I to tell them what to believe?"
They did this time and again on this issue and many others.
About Hillary, Benghazi and so many more.
They enabled the bullshit and now they can all drown in it, hopefully.
They made it, they own it, let it kill them off.

She is like Trump, she LOVES the attention, even negative attention when she can play the victim. She learned well at the feet of 45. They need to make her irrelevant.

Now I don’t want to dismiss sicko pdeophiles but when that’s coupled with Satanists and cannibals you know something just clicks in my brain that maybe I mean just maybe that it’s COMPLETE F’ING BULLSHIT.....

29. Logic and critical thinking.

We know that pedophilia exists. We know that human trafficking exists. We were made aware that there are powerful people like Jeffery Epstein that were implicated in the procurement of young, likely underage girls for sexual acts. We can know ALL of that is true and STILL have complete incredulity that there is a global cabal of pedophiles lead by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party. There is simply NO evidence to support those allegations.

No one who accepts the Q-anon conspiracies as true has the mental capacity to serve in Congress.

39. Every interview on msnbc and cnn with GOP should mock with this statement

“I was allowed to believe...”

Does a person who says they were “allowed to believe” nonsense have the necessary judgment to be in congress?

Is she suggesting there should the thought police, who could stop her from believing something?

That statement in its absurd glory, over and over.

43. She was saying she has the RIGHT to believe things that aren't true.

It was oddly phrased because she was referencing things she said in the past that she now knows (or believes) were untrue.

She could have said "I have the right to believe things that aren't true and discuss them with others."

Which she does. You have the right to believe bullshit; it is not a crime.

41. She's not saying someone permitted her to believe lies, or that she was led astray.

She's saying it's her RIGHT to believe lies; she's referencing her past acts before she was elected.

In fact, she IS allowed to believe lies AND discuss them with others. Pretty much everyone does to some degree.

That's what organized religion essentially is, isn't it? Lies the faithful believe and discuss with others?

Well, except for the one you believe in. That one is literally 100% true and anyone who says otherwise is oppressing you.

49. This is petty, but have y'all noticed her inability to pronounce certain words correctly?

Like cabal, for example. I guess someone else is writing her speeches or something.

And in earlier footage from 2017 or 2018, she couldn't even pronounce "anon" correctly. She called it Q-aynen.
